I want to know what you guys think about that, cause i have been talking to people of different religions and they are not agreed one to another. Who has the truth in that subject?. Jehovah witnesses, adventists, mormons, catholics. Evangelicals Christians . if you talk to them you will be surprised, cause they talk about the same God but in very different ways.

I am a Seventh Day Adventist, and we believe that Jesus is God. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three entities, but one God. So God is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I hope this doesn't confuse you.

@rosekiss I am with you in your belief that that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are all in one. The trinity

@Butchcass4 Even though the word trinity isn't in the bible, we do believe that they are one.

rosekiss Genesis 1: 26 "Let US make man in OUR image..." As you know, the word us indicates there is more than one there. The Father sits on the throne with Jesus Christ at His right hand and the Holy Spirit is on the earth with us and within us.

I think that yes, they are a part of each other in much the same way that a child is a part of their mom and dad, but they are still separate individuals. Genesis 1: 26 "Let us make man in our image..." As you know, the word us indicates there is more than one there. To some that us represents the father (God), the son (Jesus) and holy spirit.

Jesus is God, otherwise you worship two gods. God said not to put any gods before Him. I'm a daughter, I'm also a mother and a grandmother. Water can be liquid, but it can also be solid when it's frozen.

@Ow4iS3 I am a mother, at the same time, I'm a daughter and a grandmother. So why can't God be God and Jesus, His son at the same time?

Two God can't be worshipped,because God is one and the same to all.He may assume many forms.And He may assume all forms at the same time.

@joanreyes00 According to my point of view , God comes to earth in the Human form Jesus . Air is in aircooler and also in outdoors . The Ocean is one and the rivers are many . No need to worry about various denominations . To hold our own belief will be easy to reach the destination .

@else34 John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through ME. Jesus Christ gave His life to pay for our sins so we could be forgiven and our names written in the Lamb's book of Life. Jesus still heals, delivers, redeems and does all kinds of Miracles.

The very complex nature of theology involved in believing in scripture and working through its different teachings / conclusions etc. creates schisms and breakaway sections of churches set up alternative or rival sections of belief. Most religions are splinter sections, or 'sects' from others. Unitarians for example, reject the Trinity idea of Holy Ghost, Jesus & God being united 3-in-1. The Protestant Reformation was due to Luther's rejection of much Roman Catholic doctrine, etc. and so it goes on.

Yes if you talk to the many different so called Christian based religions ....All have different ideas on who Jesus Christ is....So stop listening to what other men say..and pick up the word of God The Holy Bible and go by what it says......if you want to be a true follower of Christ, or a christian.... The Holy Bible says in many different places that Jesus is God in the flesh....... Jehovah witnesses, Mormons....Have changed the Holy Bible into something different...They use different books.. Advantest i do not know much about.... Catholics...Have added books to their bible, and they do many rituals that are not in the Bible.. So when in doubt all ways go to the source the Holy bible....

in our religion, we believe in the Trinity : there is one God with 3 personas, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. but it doesn't really matter which god people believe in, as long as they do good

@lady,we Hindus too believe in the Trinity that comprises of three forms of God.Brahma,Vishnu and Shiva.Lord Brahma creates the the universe,Lord Vishnu sustains it and Lord Shiva destroys it when it is time for it to get destroyed.

The God of the Bible (King James Bible). John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said to (Jesus) Him, "My Lord and my God!" John 10:30 I and My Father are one. To answer your question; "Yes Jesus is God" Matthew 1:23 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, "God with us." It is important to know who the God is that you serve. The Bible is full of God's Truths and if you REALLY want to know you'll read it, start in the book of John first as it's all about His love for you and I.

According to the Catholic theology, Jesus is the second person in a Trinity made up the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Father is considered the creator of the universe, while the Son, another aspect of God, took on human form to live among us. The Holy Spirit combines the best of both beings and comes into us if we receive God into our lives. When Catholics talk of God, they are talking of all three, and this is among the mysteries that they are told will be resolved at the end of the world when He/They return to establish a peaceful kingdom. I like to think of it as Jesus being sent by God so that both could know what being human is like. Because of the sins of humans, Jesus offered Himself up as a sacrifice to appease His Father's anger, an ancient practice in keeping with the sacrificing of lambs by the Jews during Passover. Jesus represented His Father's thinking in a way the early Jews could understand. I often wonder what means He/They would use today if they were to replay that scenario now.

Rachel Lovejoy John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God , and the Word was God.2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made (the Word is Jesus Christ) He was involved in Creation. This is only one of many verses that indicates this. If you need more Scriptures let me know I'll be glad to share.

I think the answer is yes to both questions. I'll illustrate why I answer that way. If we took a human father (John) and his son (James) and asked the same questions. Is James human? Are John and James very different? The answer, yes James is human. Yes, John and James are very different. Does that make sense? Since the son comes from the father, he would be alike but they would be different in that one caused the other to live and not visa versa. Might that help with the confusion? While God and Jesus are of the same substance, they are different in age, etc.

I've always had this feeling that Jesus and God were the same, yet separate beings with the same powers and abilities.. In the Bible, at least the one I read, Jesus states that the Father was greater than he. According to that, this would make God's authority greater. This is my belief.

Hy @joanreyes00, I saw your article and it's a very interesting subject to debate on. I am an orthodox girl, but my religion is a bullshit and a few years ago I discovered the Catholicism and I loved it because despite Ortodoxism , Catholics consider that the Purgatory exists, it's a middle place between heaven and hell . Catolics bring as sacrifice the lamb and the Saint Mass , the Ortodoxes consider the Jesus as sacrifice. So...I became converted at Catholics. Catholics consider that the Virgin Mary is borned as Jesus, so The Father created the world and all around us.

What we believe and what is actually the truth are two totally different things. Jesus came to be the perfect sacrifice to pay for the whole worlds sins from beginning to the last soul, to make a way for us to be with Him in heaven forever. The Bible is a proven book, there is much scientific evidences in favor of the accounts of the Bible.

As a Hindu,I would say,if you firmly believe that Jesus is God,then He is God for you.And if you don't believe in God,then God will cease to be God for you.

@joanreyes,I am a Hindu from India,not a Christian.I have not read the Bible.So don't know what to say.My Christian friends here in my town believe Jesus is God.At the same time they say He is the son of God.I don't see any difference in the father and the son.Hindu faith says if you worship a stone considering it God,you will attain Him.Our philosophy says that the God is not different from His creation.A true Hindu sees God in everything he sees or hears or smells or feels.
